General Safety Instructions
Hydraulic fluid may be hot if system has been in operation. Allow time for system
to cool before performing maintenance or injury to personnel may result.
Residual pressure may remain in hydraulic lines. Open fittings slowly or injury to
personnel may result.
Hydraulic fluid may be absorbed through the skin. Wear long sleeves, gloves, and
goggles or face shield. If hydraulic fluid gets into the eyes, flush them immediately
with water and seek medical attention. If hydraulic fluid gets on skin, thoroughly
wash with soap and water. Wash hands thoroughly prior to eating or smoking.
When performing maintenance on hydraulic tubes and fittings, it is important to
tag both ends of a tube or hose and tag all associated fittings with item numbers
shown on the illustration. This method of tagging will ease installation.
Make sure hydraulic control module door panel is lowered (para. 2-6).
Using two people, remove six capscrews (1), lockwashers (2), and lower panel (3) from hydraulic control module
(4). Carefully remove lower panel (3), with panel door attached, out from under semitrailer and place on platform.
